Should I Self-Publish? with Gwyn GB


Are you considering self-publishing? Join indie writer Gwyn GB for a frank discussion which will help you decide if going solo is right for you. Gwyn will consider the pros and cons of the various publishing options, the skills and mind set you will need to be successful, and the practicalities of running your own publishing business.

Building An Author Website with Gerald Hornsby


Every author who wishes to develop their writing career should have some form of online presence – your own space on the internet, where you can engage with your audience and promote your work. In this online session, you will learn the best and most affordable ways of creating your own website.

Launching a Boutique Press with Sara Gran


Have you ever wanted to start your own publishing imprint? Sara Gran, author of eight novels including the Claire DeWitt mysteries, is launching new indie press Dreamland Books and she’s going all-in. Join Sara and Jericho’s Drew Broussard for a conversation about moving from author to publisher and about the trials, tribulations, and triumphs of deciding to do it for herself.

Branding and Self-Marketing for Self-Published Authors with Anna Caig


Too often, authors doing their own marketing feel like they’re shouting into a vacuum. But it doesn’t have to be this way. This session combines author branding with exploring your creativity and  unique perspectives – and how this insight can be used to form meaningful connections with readers.

School Girl Errors: Mistakes Career Authors Should Avoid


What are the career limiting decisions and mistakes that can cut your self-publishing journey off before it’s started? By the end of this session with rebel podcaster Sacha Black, you’ll have a clear idea of what mindsets will hamper your business growth, what to avoid if you want to earn a full-time income from your writing, as well as some awkward first-hand launch mistakes to avoid!

In Conversation with Matador


Choosing the right Self-Publishing company is very important. It’s the decision that can make you as an author, but also break you. We’ll be asking self-publishing service Matador, an imprint of Troubador, about what they do, why they do it and how you can get your work noticed. We’ll talk money, marketing and publicity. Come armed with your questions!

Traditional Vs Self-Publishing with Harry Bingham


Should you publish with a traditional publisher or go it alone? There’s a stack of things to consider, including what kind of book you have, what your aspirations are, and what kind of outcomes you want. Harry has successfully published via both routes and will help you decide what’s right for you.

Book Cover Design with Jessica Bell


Book cover design is one of the most important things to consider when self-publishing a book, and can really separate the wheat from the chaff. Join award-winning designer Jessica Bell to find out what makes a cover stand out, how to choose the right designer and get the most out of your working relationship with them.
